What is Amrit?

Amrit is an Ayurvedic herbal supplement that is formulated to promote immunity, health and longevity. I also wondered, what is Amrit, and want to share my research with you. Amrit comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “immortality,” similar to the Greek word “Ambrosia.” Amrit translates to an “elixir of immortality.” Yogis often meditate in the hours before daylight (4 am to 7 am) because that window of time is said to be the “Amrit Vela” or ambrosial hours.

The ancient Indian sacred texts refer to Amrit as nectar, the drink of the devas, the Divine ones. For us mortals, Amrit is a food that promotes health and vigor by nourishing and balancing our bodies and minds. Ayurveda teaches that Amrit nourishes our blood, muscles, bones, marrow, reproductive fluids, and other important body fluids.

Amrit balances the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, and therefore tri-dosha balancing. If you would like to take a short quiz to find out what your primary dosha and dosha balance is, click here.

Amrit is considered a Rasayana, a primary method for promoting vigor and health on the physical level which also prepares you for experiencing transcendence. A great benefit for those seeking a stress and anxiety-free way of being in the world. Amrit supports your vital strength or “bala” which contributes to longevity.

“Enhancing memory and longevity; keeping body and mind limber; imparting radiance to the skin; benefiting the quality of voice and effectiveness of speech, and increasing the fortitude of the senses and intellect”

As described in the oldest existing Indian medical text, Charaka Samhita

Why Take Amrit?

As a Full-Spectrum Natural Antioxidant Herbal Supplement, this product is effective for people who want to support their brain, nervous system, and immune system. Amrit is a powerful antioxidant, which slows down the aging process by “mopping up” free radicals.

The key to Amrit’s effectiveness is in its ability to reduce free-radical damage. Think of a cut apple left on the counter; it starts to brown from or free-radical’s oxidation. That is where the term anti-oxidant comes from, that which reduces the “browning” or decaying effect.

The same can happen with your own body, oxidation causes damage to your cells, DNA, and health in general. Anti-oxidants help prevent oxidative stress from happening in the first place. Bioflavonoids are responsible for Amrit’s highly effective antioxidant power. Amrit scavenges up free-radicals which also helps keep cholesterol in check.

Also known as the “Golden Cup of Longevity,” Amrit also is said to strengthen mental retention and recall. Amrit helps you with the aging process, supports heart health and cardiovascular as well as brain health by reducing free radical damage.

Top 5 Reasons to Take Amrit

  • Improves Your Immunity
  • Brain and Nervous System Support
  • Longevity Enhancing
  • Full-Spectrum Antioxidant
  • 97-99% Organic Ingredients

Amrit is prepared from a blend of 44 herbs that are processed at low temperatures to preserve the vital nutrients. The “antiquity processing” maintains the integrity of the Amrit. When looking for Ayurvedic formulas the manufacturing process is as important as the individual ingredients themselves.

Who is Amrit For?

Amrit is formulated for people who want to improve their immune systems, health and vitality. Amrit is highly beneficial for people who want to add natural protection to help them prevent getting sick. People also love Amrit for anti-aging purposes.

The researchers who conducted studies using Maharishi Amrit concluded that “it [Amrit] contributes to the prevention of the immunosenescence.” Immunosenescence means the gradual deterioration of the immune system brought on by the natural aging process.

How Do I Take Amrit?

Ayurvedic practitioners recommend taking the Amrit Kalash Ambrosia together with Amrit Kalash Nectar as a paired and harmonizing immune system supplement. The manufacturer recommends that you consult your health care provider prior to taking any supplements, including Amrit.

Herbs work better together, they have a synergistic effect when properly combines. This is why the formulas passed down through the ages are revered in Ayurvedic medicine. Amrit formulas haven’t changed much since ancient times and the methods are passed down from one generation of Ayurvedic practitioners to the next. This is especially true of reputable producers of Amrit, such as VPK MAPI.

  1. Hi Dr. Anne, thanks a lot for providing information regarding this supplement. I had never heard of it, but it sounds like it can be really beneficial to take. I really believe in plant medicine, and even if it can take longer to show effects, I think it’s better than taking conventional medicine.

    By any chance, do you know if this supplement is good for labyrinthitis? As I see that it supports the brain, perhaps it could be beneficial, as I am struggling with vertigo and ringing in my ears for the last two years. 

    • Hi Fernanda,

      I do not know if Amrit would help labyrinthitis or not; I did not see anything specific about the inner ear as I was doing my research. Since Ayurvedic medicine is all about rebalancing the body and its systems (nervous, immune, hormonal), it may help nourish and support some of the underlying causes of labyrinthitis. 

      I have experienced vertigo a couple of times myself and empathize with you. I go back to the basics of nutrient-dense foods, clean water, energy medicine (grounding), and nutrients. Also, daily meditation helps regulate your nervous system, which underlies so many dis-ease conditions. 

      Thanks for stopping by,

  2. What Is An Amrit? Well I have to admit that I had no idea. when I heard that it is a herbal supplement to promote immunity health, perfect for the times that we are in right now especially. I have to admit that I didn’t think about my immunity health like I should of before this pandemic. I did try and take the quiz about your primary dosha is, but it would not load. I also like the fact that it has 97%-99% Organic ingredients. That’s huge for me.

    Watching the video was also beneficial, because knowing that it has been around for a long time, helps me with understanding the safety of the product. Great post and I am definitely thinking about ordering a bottle. Very informative article about Amrit, thank you for sharing.

      My appreciation for Ayurveda and long-standing recipes has grown over the past decade or so. Whereas some people go for the single herbs or supplements, they marry together for even greater and more synergistic results.
